Here is Willow's latest post…

Wow it's been a crazy week. But first a little about my last performance, the Argentine Tango! Yayyyyyy, I was so happy with our performance! Mark Ballas and I really worked hard on this dance. Plus, I felt super motivated by being able to dance to my favorite song, "Somebody That I Used to Know," for My Jam Monday. I know a lot of people thought there is no way a 14-year-old ...

The second round of Season 20 of Dancing With the Stars went off tonight with ‘My Jam Monday,’ where the stars and their pro-partners got to dance to whatever song they wanted. The night was filled with surprises, including unexpected song choices, huge performance improvements, and the revelation of which star was going to be the first to go home.

Video: The Best, Worst and Weirdest Dances From the 'DWTS' Season 20 Premiere

Here are the best, the worst, and the weirdest moments from the Dancing With The Stars’ bombastic ‘My Jam Monday’ spectacular.

The Best

Suzanne Somers Shakes Her Stuff

Suzanne and Tony did a great number set to Jerry Lee Lewis' "Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On" that started off with the 68-year-old actress in a pink-fringe dress dancing on the top of a leopard print grand piano, and it only got better from there.

Dancing With the Stars Week 2 Results: Did the Right Couple Go Home?

23 March 2015 7:58 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Not that Dancing With the Stars‘ title really needs to be longer — but after the powerhouse performances delivered on Monday’s installment, may we suggest that Season 20 be known as Dancing With the Stars: The Comeback Kids?

Following a season premiere that left much to be desired from the celebs on the dance floor, Week 2 found even the lowest-scoring couples making an excellent case for why they should walk away with this year’s Mirrorball trophy.

Charlotte McKinney, for example, displayed impressive precision on her cha-cha with Keo Motsepe (while also reminding us that cyberbullying is not cool); Redfoo, »

Willow Shields and Mark Ballas seen rehearsing for ‘Dancing with the Stars’ on March 10, 2015 (ABC)

The day before the show I was taken aside by one of the producers and told that Mark and I were opening the season. I'm like ok, what does that mean exactly? The producer repeated themselves by saying pretty much the same thing but a little slower, "Youu and Mark arrrre going to be ...

You'll Never Guess Why Willow Shields' Dad Interrupted Her Dancing With the Stars Rehearsal With Mark Ballas

19 March 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

"He was like, 'Uh-oh!'" That was Willow Shields' impression of Mark Ballas when he learned he was paired with The Hunger Games' starlet on this season of Dancing With the Stars. Why? Because at just 14 years old, she's the ABC hit's youngest competitor ever! Of course, she was mostly joking, as Ballas tells E! News he's "taught kids as young as nine" how to dance, but never at this level or intensity. Or when they were actually forced to take breaks, which the fan-favorite pro has dubbed "snack time!" Not a fan of snack time? Willow! "I get mad when I have to have snack time…because I'm 14, I'm forced to have breaks and school »

'Dancing With the Stars' Season 20 Premiere Recap: So It Begins...

17 March 2015 4:33 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Hey Dance fans! The "landmark 20th season" and 10th year of "Dancing with the Stars" has begun, and it already looks like some fierce competition. Many strong and surprising dancers hide among the twelve new contestants, and the weak links are only moderately weak. No Master Ps, Lolo Joneses, or Michael Waltrips here this season, thank goodness. But why do they bother making Derek Hough go through the motions of competing when they're going to pair him up with former Olympic gymnast Nastia Liukin? Seems like a shoo-in. But who knows, she could be terrible. It's unlikely, but anything is possible.

Lots of the pairings seem the same as in past seasons though. Tony Dovolani is again placed with an older competitor, while Mark Ballas is with the young one; Derek is with the ringer again, and Val with the surprising unknown talent. Fortunately, Peta is again paired with someone »

DWTS Season 20 Premiere Recap: Who Stood Out? Who's At Risk?

16 March 2015 8:06 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

At the top of Dancing With the Stars‘ 20th season premiere, we were promised the start of a new dance era.

The only problem? It looks a lot like the same dance era we’ve been watching for the past 10 years.

In fact, for all intents and purposes, the beginning of Dancing‘s newest season unfolded exactly as you might have expected: Bruno Tonioli climbed on the judges’ table in an effort to show us how seriously he takes all of this; Derek Hough once again set the bar impossibly high with a firecracker partner in Nastia Liukin; and, perhaps least surprising of all, »

Julianne Hough Enjoys A Workout Sans Makeup -- See Her Fresh-Face!

27 February 2015 12:45 PM, PST | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Julianne Hough is fresh-faced and beautiful!  The "Footloose" star was spotted out in West Hollywood on Thursday getting in a workout and sporting a completely makeup-free mug. Clad in a tank, sneakers and running shorts, the 26-year-old looked ready for an intense fitness session. We can't get over how young the actress looks when she's not all done up. And yes, she still looked gorgeous and glowing as she enjoyed the outdoors.   Julianne does love to experiment with her look. In January, she stepped out with a bold red lip and messy waves for the Nine Zero One Melrose Place Launch Party in Los Angeles.   The star's love for makeup actually goes way back to her child ballroom dancing days. She posted a throwback photo on Thursday of her as a 10-year-old dancing star fully made up with a very young Mark Ballas!  #tbt to back in my competitive Latin »
